Martha's 31 Days of Horror - Movie Review: Behind the Mask the Rise of Leslie Vernon

Nice, normal-looking Leslie Vernon... or is he?
Leslie has an obsession with Freddy, Jason... and he thinks he can do EXACTLY what they can do, maybe even BETTER. So he allows this film crew to follow him around as he prepares to be the NEXT Slasher.

This movie has everyone in it, the little ol' lady from Poltergeist and the ONE and ONLY...
ROBERT ENGLUND!!!! Yes. Mr. Freddy Krueger himself!

So I won't ruin the film for you... it's quite the journey. It's kinda low budget. I don't know how much went into filming but whatever amount they spent was WORTH IT. It is one of the best "documentary" style horror films I've ever had the pleasure of watching.
You find your self kinda rooting for Leslie. You want to see him succeed. He really puts a lot into it... down to the detail. Quite impressive for someone just starting out as a potential killer.
Overall, BEHIND THE MASK: THE RISE OF LESLIE VERNON is a must see for all horror fans... I really would LOVE to see a sequel to this movie. I heard one was in the works don't know if it fell through or lost funding but hey... MAKE IT HAPPEN!

Do YOU have what it takes to be like Jason, Freddy, Michael, or Leatherface?

No not in a million years.
Maybe, who knows?
